Captain Louie (Off-Broadway) Story

Young Louie feels lonely and without friends in his new neighborhood. Looking for something to cheer himself up on Halloween Night, Louie returns to his old neighborhood friends in an imaginative journey on the wings of his favorite toy, his little red plane. The story is full of tricks and treats, and the incomparable music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz (Wicked, Godspell). Most of all, Captain Louie is about friendship -- the ability to make new friends and the importance of old ones. The New York Times says Captain Louie captures "the sound and rhythm of music that runs through childhood fantasies with a book that conveys the communicative magic of the original story." The show has been adapted for the stage by Anthony Stein, and is based on The Trip by Caldecott Award winner Ezra Jack Keats who authored and illustrated 24 children's classics, including the Caldecott Award winning The Snowy Day and the Caldecott Honor Book, Goggles.
